Would it be technically possible to have an option, integrated into the Bitcoin software itself (not just the GUI), where users can set a password on their Bitcoin wallets, so that it must be entered before each payment is sent, and even if somebody copies the wallet file, they can't spend any bitcoins without using the password?

Similar to how you can have a password for your GPG key.

Do not waste your time debating whether Bitcoin can work. It does work.

"Early adopters will profit" is not a sufficient condition to classify something as a pyramid or Ponzi scheme. If it was, Apple and Microsoft stock are Ponzi schemes.

There is no such thing as "market manipulation." There is only buying and selling.

I support this suggestion. From my limited understanding of how Bitcoin works, password protected sending of Bitcoins seems to be an essential requirement.

Faith is believing what you know isn’t true. For example, Global Warming.
